Yesterday I watched a magnificent hawk soar overhead and land in the top of a sky-scraping pine tree. He sat for a while surveying his new digs and I wondered how he felt about our burned out hillsides. His life has changed drastically since the recent wildfires, just as ours have. He knows he can no longer live in the charred remains of our Angeles Crest Forest. Just as he makes adjustments, we need to as well. The soot and fine dirt blowing down from the hillsides have brought us some nasty air quality that we need to be careful of. Fine particles of ash and dust can exacerbate asthma, sinus problems, and even acne.

Farmer's markets are not just for farmers anymore. Many of them, such as the weekly La Cañada Flintridge Farmer's Market, play host to purveyors of artisanal and specialty foods . From canapes to coffee, you can fill your basket with every ingredient for dinner, not just for the salad. Things are buzzing right at opening time of 9 a.m. each Saturday at the LCFFM. The first thing you'll want to do is get a cup of coffee at Forge. They roast the beans in small batches every Friday night close by in the San Fernando Valley so you can be sure you're getting the absolute freshest coffee Saturday morning.

My birthday has come and gone and I don’t feel a day older than my heyday when I was in my 30s. However, the mirror quickly brings me back to reality. I spent my birthday celebration at the Las Floristas Headdress Ball at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Julie Pejsa Julie Pejsa was not only my very gracious hostess but also a mannequin. Next week I’ll tell you more about it and show you photos of the fabulous headdresses, for now I have other news to tell you. It was a truly sweet affair recently when the Junior League of Pasadena held its fund-raiser, called the “ Chocolate Chip Ball ” at Castle Green in Pasadena.

Women in exquisite formal gowns and glittering jewels accompanied by gentlemen in tuxedos were the center of attraction for photographers as the flash of their cameras lit up the night. It was the opening night, Sept. 17, at the Music Center's Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for the Los Angeles Opera's 25th season and the eagerly anticipated performance of Tchaikovsky's dramatic “Eugene Onegin.” This is only the second time that L.A.

Dining With Duvall By Lynn Duvall Sandra Hannah whipped up her first batch of cornbread from scratch, when she was only 4 years old. As the eldest of nine children, Sandra spent long hours in the kitchen, helping her mother cook for the family. What might have been a chore for some, became a source of pride and pleasure for Sandra. "We lived on a farm in Arkansas. With a lot of brothers and sisters you always have someone to play with."

Lynn Duvall When Bistro Verdu opened its doors in Montrose almost four years ago, the Spanish and French-influenced restaurant had no liquor license. Customers brought their own wine until the owner-chef Michael Ruiz's application for a license was approved. Faced with the task of designing a good wine list, he enlisted the help of wine consultant Jeff Zimmitti. Today the two men are neighbors on Verdugo Road. At Bistro Verdu, Michael continues to build a loyal customer base.
